Title
Appeal of Mary L. Murphy and Thomas M. Murphy to a Summary Abatement Order at 15 BAKER STREET WEST. (Public hearing continued from January 21) (To be referred back to Legislative Hearing on October 13, 2015; Council public hearing to be continued to October 21, 2015)
 
Purpose of Appeal
We are appealing this abatement order because the retaining wall failed and collapsed due to negligence on the part of Roger Hudge in controlling water drainage from the structure located on his property at 642 Hall Avenue.  Furthermore, the building owned by Roger Hodge at 642 Hall was built short of the 3 foot set-back from our adjoining property, which is against city code.  This added to the negligence on the part of Mr. Hodge.  Please see all previous evidence, including picture, video and narratives written by Tom and Mary Murphy.
